My computer started behaving strangely yesterday.
My Norton Antivirus has not been updated recently, but it runs automaticallly on Sunday nights and it found 6 malware files which I could not delete or could not fine. One was actually running : aplqg.exe
My internet explorer defaults to about.blank
My earthlink explorer Toolbar will not load, it says it is trying to use a network source that is unavailable and the path that defaults in is: C:\DOCUME~1\sherree\LOCALS~1\Temp\TA_2005_1_Installer\Windows\access\

Per your sites instructions I loaded a new version of Ad-aware and deleted 150 files.
I ran Spybot Search and Destroy 1.3.1 TX , which found about 30 things it did not like.
I installed and ran AVG which found and deleted 2 trojans.
I tried to run Trend Housecall but it would only run from Microsoft Explorer ( I normally use Mozilla Firefox) and the browser kept shutting down.
I installed and ran TDS.3 with no results.
Everytime I log back into Explorer now I get a series of AVG messages:
VIRUS DETECTED! While opening C:\WINNT\system32\netwj32.exe Trojan Horse Backdoor.Small.27.Al

VIRUS DETECTED! While opening C:\WINNT\system32\cmw32.exe Trojan Horse Backdoor.Small.27.Al


VIRUS DETECTED! While opening C:\WINNT\system32\sdkuq.exe Trojan Horse Downloader Agent 9.BF

VIRUS DETECTED! While opening C:\WINNT\system32\netwj32.exe Trojan Horse Backdoor.Small.27.Al
VIRUS DETECTED! While opening C:\WINNT\system32\apln.exe Trojan Horse Backdoor.Small.27.Al

VIRUS DETECTED! While opening C:\WINNT\system32\cmw32.exe Trojan Horse Backdoor.Small.27.Al

They let me delete them but they just keep coming back.

I ran Hijack This and here is the log results.

Hello,
Sorry for the delay in response as we have been very busy lately.

Since your original post is over a week old, could you please post a fresh Hijack This log for review.

If you have already gotten your machine fixed, please respond here and let us know.

Thanks
